OK, so I stole this from Julie (a friend from church), but I hadn't seen it before and I thought it was pretty good - and very true. Thanks, Julie!

You're from Colorado if ...

You have no accent at all, but can hear other people's. And then you make fun of them.

'Humid' is over 25%.

Your sense of direction is: Toward the mountains and Away from the mountains.

You say 'the interstate' and everybody knows which one.

You think that April is a totally normal month for a blizzard. (And that snow in September and May is not that weird, either.)

You grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat. (And snow boots!)

You know what the Continental Divide is.

You've gone off-roading in a vehicle that was never intended for such activities.

You always know the elevation of where you are.

You wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day and you check to see if it's going to snow tomorrow.

Everybody wears jeans to church.

You actually know that "South Park" is a real place not just a show on TV.

Your two favorite teams are the Broncos and whoever is beating the crap out of the Raiders.

When people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you just laugh.

You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels 'sticky' (I usually think 'sticky' and 'thick') and you notice the sky is no longer quite the same blue.
